Read a Teaser of Bury the Bones

I was embarrassed for my momma because though she fat, she ain’t used to that kinda treatment. She looked at the floor.
“Since you think she so fat and ugly, get your stuff and leave.”  I held onto my wooden bat with all my might because I was just waiting for the chance to hit him with it.
“Do you want to me leave Maddie?” He asked my momma. “Because I will if you want me to.” He walked into the bedroom and pretended to be packing his stuff. My momma ran behind him and closed the door. The walls were thin in our house so I heard him begging for money again. My momma kept telling him no. That went on all night long.
